2015 NFL Draft: Intro to Box Score Scouting

Written by Justin Higdon, Senior Draft Analyst on January 6, 2015

gordon

Years ago, when I first delved into the world of NFL Draft analysis, I was introduced to the phrase “box score scouting.” Often used in a derisive manner, this bit of terminology refers to the use of statistics as a substitute for actually watching a prospect’s games. In debates – particularly on twitter, where statements are limited to 140 characters – citing numbers to support one’s case can result in a lecture (“Watch the tape, pal”) and the “box score scout” label. I know this occurs, because I’ve experienced it firsthand.

A Look at Oregon’s 2015 Prospects

Written by Justis Mosqueda on December 10, 2014

Marcus Mariota

An inaugural playoff team, the Oregon Ducks have talent on both sides of the ball. As CBS’s Dane Brugler has pointed out several times this season, this could be the year for Oregon to break their program’s single-season record of players drafted to the next level.

Before going deeper into the roster, and it is deep, we must first begin with Marcus Mariota.

 

Marcus Mariota, QB, #8*

Mariota is in all likelihood going to be a top-five pick. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who follows college football or the NFL draft.

He’s an efficient quarterback who can throw as well on the run as in the pocket and has the breakaway speed to hit the home run ball. All in all, he looks like a crossbred version of Russell Wilson and Ryan Tannehill.

He’s still not completely filled out. Some will have issues with his (read more…)

Five GIFs to Get to Know Chuckie Keeton

Written by Derrik Klassen on August 17, 2014

Chuckie Keeton - Featured

In what’s shaping up to be a weak senior quarterback class, Chuckie Keeton stands out from the rest. Aside from prototypical size, the Utah State signal caller possesses all the tools that make a top-notch NFL quarterback.

It’s curious, then, that the Mountain West Preseason OPOY has never received the national recognition he deserves.

Then again, that very well may be a product of the ACL injury that Keeton suffered halfway through last season. The injury was a shame not only because it will be a concern moving forward, but also because he was on pace for a jaw-dropping statistical year before he went down.

2014 is both a new beginning and a final chance for Keeton. He will come back as a fresh player, but at the same time, it is his senior season and he has to prove his worth.

Without further ado, let’s get (read more…)
